The Timeline View

The calendar Timeline view shows each calendar in its own row, with the option of seeing a day, multiple days, a week, or multiple weeks. It’s easy to compare scheduled events, reserved rooms, shifts, and tasks in this view. The individual rows keep events separated, while the side-by-side view makes it easy to see availability at a glance.

If you don’t see Timeline in your viewing options: The calendar administrator may need to enable it in Settings > Calendar Views.

Feature Tips & Best Practices

⏰ Use zoom level to see the level of details you need

Adjust the zoom level in the Timeline calendar view from level 1 to level 10. Set higher for a zoomed-in view of the time grid when you need to compare to-the-minute appointments. Set the zoom level lower when you need to see a big-picture comparison of schedules, appointments, or space bookings.

⏰ Choose the best mode and quickly adjust dates.

Choose from single day, multi-day, week, or multi-week mode. Set the number of days or weeks shown in the multi modes. Choose the visible date with the arrows or date picker in the top menu. Working with a smaller screen? Scroll horizontally to view off-screen dates.

⏰ Drag and drop events to different times or sub-calendars.

Drag and drop an event to move it to a different time slot on the same calendar row. Or drag and drop an event across rows to move it to a different sub-calendar: easily re-assign tasks to team members or switch shifts.

⏰ Hide or show sub-calendars in Timeline view.

Turn sub-calendars on or off by toggling it in the Timeline view to focus only on the events you need to see at the moment, compare relevant schedules, and remove distractions. The row will disappear when you hide the sub-calendar. Hide all sub-calendars in a folder in the same way.
